Professors' Corner: The Supreme Shift in Takings Litigation - Knick v. Township of Scott

Tuesday, February 11, 2020
12:30 PM ET

Panelists:

  • Michael Pollack
  • Robert H Thomas
  • Stewart E Sterk

Moderator: Shelby D Green

Last term, in Knick v. Township of Scott, the Supreme Court overruled the long-standing requirement that state takings claims first be litigated in state courts. The Court held that a property owner has an actionable takings claim when the government takes property without paying for it and a property owner may proceed directly to federal court, even if there are avenues for redress under state law. The panelists will offer insight on these and other weighty issues.
